Rochioli Chardonnay Estate 2014
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Estate comes from both Wente and Hanzel clones of Chardonnay. It displays loads of caramelized citrus and orange blossom, a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, great minerality and freshness, and a floral personality. This wine sees about one-third to 40% new oak and is bottled unfiltered.
Wine EnthusiastThis is pure, focused Russian River Valley at its most exuberant, full bodied and dark in color. Textured layers of pear, honey and melon dance around good, tight acidity, allowing for a balance of decadent pleasure.
